The somewhat deployment was partially due to technical reasons.  The old
FOSWiki was loading down the Web server too heavily and I needed to fix
that ASAP.  Additionally, we were starting to get into a "split-head"
scenario with two websites (production and the vastly different
development) that had to be kept in sync; much longer and we would have
had a lot of work to do porting newly-added content from the old site to
the new site.

If you like, think of the current site as a beta.  I can give you access
to the development site and I am fairly confident we can polish it up the
rest of the way for R14 release--at least I now have the much-needed
ability to add new content to the site again.
